I inspire and instruct people to improve their lives, achieve their goals faster, and reach high performance in every area of their life. 

ABOUT JAY

 

Jay Tiegs believes taking on difficult challenges in life with persistence and commitment enables people to find great success in life. He is a certified high performance coach and transitioning veteran with over 25 years of service in the United States Army, from private to sergeant first class before commissioning as an officer. 
 
His mantra "Do Hard Things" has enabled him to overcome many struggles in life and achieve success completing difficult challenges.  This shift in perspective allowed him to go from a directionless teenager who grew up in a fatherless home to a commissioned officer in the United States Army, where he successfully commanded two units that specialize in leadership development of our nation's next generation of emerging military leaders. 
 
He now shares his outlook on personal transformation as a speaker, trainer, and high performance coach for audiences ranging from elementary school children to executive-level leaders.

“I can’t say enough about working with Jay. His coaching and mentorship is not only helping me getting closer to achieving my personal and professional goals but has also pushed me to better myself as a husband, father, and friend. If it weren’t for my work with him, I’d still be stuck. Instead, I’m pushing myself harder and farther than I ever would have on my own.”

“I am a digital marketing manager and single mom. I was at a point where I felt overwhelmed with maintaining work and family life.  I was merely surviving instead of thriving. I just couldn’t keep up with everything. My work suffered and so did my family. 

However, with Jay’s help, I am more productive, less stressed, and feel more connected with my kids.  His strategies work! I now feel like I am back on top!

“If you are looking to change your life without having someone else tell you what to do, high performance coaching is the way to go! Jay doesn’t tell you what to do, or what to say, or what goals to pursue, he encourages to reach down deep and pull them from yourself. They are your own words, your own ideas and your goals. Jay takes a no nonsense approach and doesn’t allow you to give yourself excuses. He encourages you to dig deep and go after whatever it is, your heart desires. I highly recommend it; no matter what stage of life you are in!”
